Best Albums of 2014

This is a post I do every year, and it’s getting more difficult.
Here’s last year’s list.
2012
2011
2010
2009
2008
If you like indie music, hip hop or punk music, there are some great albums on those links.  I look back at those lists and there are some extreme amounts of good albums.  The reason this list is getting harder [...]

The Year in Review: 2014 Goals

I’ve had a particularly long amount of time to consider the last year and am planning on a pretty extensive recap.  New Year’s Eve is tomorrow and there is a great deal to consider both in recapitulation and preparation for the next year–which I’ll go out on a limb and state will be the most [...]

Merry Xmas in 2014

Today is Christmas morn, a day that brings with it unity among the masses. Despite not being religious, there is still something very good about Christmas. People are kind and appreciative of what they have and often give back to those not as well off.
I personally am thankful today, for near innumerable blessings [...]

A Necessary Day Off

Today I’m at home, pretending to take a vacation day.  The dogs are wrestling around or outside chasing after one another.  Good music fills my living room and kitchen and a good cup of coffee sits near at all times.
It’s my first real day of vacation for 2014 and it’s sorely needed.  I say pretending [...]

Tough Times for Minnesotans

It’s that time of year again.  Year after year, the tiresome inevitability of winter hits right around now. People are grumpy.  Everything that irks you normally is just a little bit more annoying.If you speak with most Minnesotans the first week of February, most of us are in a sour mood.  We’re tired of being [...]

Resolutions for 2014

At the start of every year I like to set goals and reflect on what was accomplished.  Here’s what I had set as an objective last year:
1.  Buy a House. It’s time for Teresa and I to get a permanent address in South Minneapolis (hopefully.)  We will start the formal process of getting a lone [...]

Bye Bye Belize, Hello Minnesnowda

This has been an atypical vacation in terms of writing. Many things happened that were noteworthy, but it didn’t all get put on paper. We spent NYE at a very fun bar in Hopkins, a local joint where most of the proprietors from other bars and restaurants come to celebrate.  The DJ at first was [...]

Happy New Years from Belize!

It is well past time for me to write a little about our trip.  We are currently on day five, in a very nice town called Hopkins.  There are roughly 1,000 people living here and most everyone seems very happy and friendly.
Belize is a cultural melting pot unlike any I’ve seen.  There are many cultures [...]

The Year is Flying By

Just woke up and it’s December.
Teresa and I have been trying to finish most of the decorating for the house now, a bit late as we closed in late April.  One thing you’ll learn if you haven’t bought a house is that getting things set up the way you want them invariably is dictated by [...]
